Ao Nang (Nopparat Thara Beach) ferry port in Thailand connects you with Phuket (Rassada Pier) in Phuket Island with a choice of up to 7 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Ao Nang to Phuket crossing is from 7 hours 15 minutes and the crossing is operated by Phi Phi Cruiser.
In the province of Krabi on the south-western tail of Thailand is the small resort town of Ao Nang. It’s an exotic outpost on the palm-lined shores of the Andaman Sea with a humming social scene centred around the clutch of main street restaurants and bars.
The tableau of the coast is dominated by sheer-faced limestone cliffs that are almost entirely cloaked in lush green trees. They are popular with rock climbers who want to test their mettle by scaling the difficult formations of cracks and crevices.
The port of Ao Nang can be found at the western end of the pristine Nopparat Thara beach just a short distance from the town centre. It’s a small, undercover pier that stands on wooden stilts over the ocean. Both ferries and small vessels dock here before whisking island-hoppers westwards out of the bay and across the cobalt-blue waters of the sea.
Only one ferry service currently operates from the port of Ao Nang. A Phi Phi Cruiser line leaves the beach a number of times throughout the week, taking passengers on the relatively long route to the stunning isle of Phuket on the opposite coast of Thailand.
